In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, LEGO created a life-sized astronaut model showcasing the same spacesuit worn on the moon in 1969.

Standing 6’3” tall, it took the LEGO Master Builders behind the project over 300 hours (and 30,000 individual LEGO bricks) to design and build the piece of art. Every detail was carefully considered, including an especially cool reflection on the front of the helmet. 

If this speaks to you and you live near the nation's capital, LEGO will have the life-size model on display this weekend at the Apollo 50 Festival in Washington, DC.
